About

ZImbabwe flyafrica.com, or simply Zimbabwe flyafrica, was a short-lived Zimbabwean airline that flew scheduled services around Zimbabwe, as well as to other international destinations. The airline flew to six destinations at the time that it stopped flying, serving destinations within Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Zimbabwe flyafrica offered low-cost flights and a service similar to what you'd expect from other low-cost airlines within the region.

The airline launched in 2014 and was the first airline to launch under the flyafrica group. The flyafrica group planned to launch several airlines that covered different countries and regions within Africa. However, these plans never materialised and the only airline to launch other than Zimbabwe flyafrica was Namibia flyafrica, which ceased operations at the same time as Zimbabwe flyafrica.com.

Zimbabwe flyafrica flew its first flight in 2014 when it flew between its hub at Victoria Falls and Johannesburg. The airline expanded its route network over the next year but unfortunately ceased operations in 2015 after 14 months of flying. The airline had its Air Operator's Licence (AOC) removed due to disputes between its shareholders and its failure to meet regulatory requirements.

Baggage

Carry-On Baggage

Passengers were entitled to a free carry-on baggage allowance of 5 kg. This carry-on baggage didn't have any size restrictions. However, it must've been able to fit either under the seat in front of each passenger or in the overhead locker above the seats on the plane.

Carry-on baggage was included within the price of the airline ticket.

Checked Baggage

Passengers weren't entitled to a free checked baggage allowance, even on international flights.

If passengers needed to bring checked baggage, they had to purchase it either before their flight or on the day of their flight at check-in. As is the case with most airlines, pre-booking baggage was significantly cheaper than buying baggage at check-in.


Economy Class

The airline flew with a single all Economy Class cabin. As a low-cost airline, Zimbabwe flyafrica focused on offering passengers a safe and simple service at an affordable price, rather than a variety of in-flight services. The airline had a professionally trained cabin-crew who would assist passengers with anything that they might need, as well as offer and serve food and drink to passengers from the airline in-flight food and drink service.

Seats

All seats on all flights were set out in a 3 x 3 formation.


Food and Drink

The airline offered an in-flight food and drink service that consisted of light refreshments such as sandwiches, potato crisps, sweets, chocolate and a variety of hot and cold drinks. Passengers were able to buy food and drink once in-flight from the airline's cabin crew, who would offer food and drink from the refreshments trolley once passengers were in-flight and the plane had taken off.


Check-In Information

Online

The airline didn't offer online check-in for any of its flights. Although, creating an online check-in service through its official website was in the airline's plans.

Airport

Passengers had to check-in at the airport for their flight. Airport check-in was completed at the airport of departure in the hours before the flight. To complete check-in, passengers had to present the relevant travel documents to one of the airline check-in agents. Passengers had to do this before the check-in deadline, otherwise, Zimbabwe flyafrica.com had the right to refuse check-in and boarding.


Fleet

At the time that it ceased operations, Zimbabwe flyafrica had a fleet that consisted entirely of Boeing 737-500 aircraft. The airline had five planes within its fleet overall.

These planes were originally owned by Czech Airlines and, after Zimbabwe flyafrica ceased operations, were returned to Czech Airlines and Prague airport.


Hub Airport

Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport

Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport is the main international airport in Harare, Zimbabwe and was the hub airport for Zimbabwe flyafrica.com. The airline was based at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International for the entirety of the short time that it flew, although, its first-ever flight actually departed from Victoria Falls Airport and not from Robert Gabriel Mugabe International. The airline has one terminal building and one runway.

Airlines that use Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport as a hub today include Air Zimbabwe and Fastjet Zimbabwe. Other airlines that use the airport include Airlink, Air Tanzania, Ethiopian Airlines, Malawian Airlines, TAAG Angola Airlines and many more.
